    So what you're saying is that NO you don't pay for the ability to tether?

    I do like the fact that you made a very long and pointless justification for the fact that you use a ridiculous amount of data. If you believe you're doing no wrong there is no need to justify it to anyone but yourself. Seeing as you did though...

    Wow! 1.3GB here and that is with what I consider to be a lot of data. (although I used a lot of wifi thanks to either being at home or in my office...)

    OK I'm not trying to white Knight the OP here but seriously. this kind of crap needs to stop.... People pay for unlimited; which last I checked was still unlimited. I pay for "unlimited" Data for FIOS and should I be throttled for going over 50GB a month!? :cus: NO I should not! Does Verizon FIOS care if I set up my Nexus on my FIOS and "tether" my data from FIOS to my phone!? NOPE! they could care less!Verizon cannot even tell the difference between the data used on the phone vs the data used via Tether... you know why!? because it's all data!!Verizon can do or say anything they want and it seems that people paying Verizon for service are content with anything Verizon wants to do. Verizon/At&T/T Mobile/Sprint/ w/e are all just Companies that offer a service in exchange for our money. They can and will do anything that we( the consumer) allows them to do. Institute Data Throttling!? Check! Institute Tiered Data packages!? Check!! brainwash remaining consumers into our way of thinking!?? Check!!! At what point are people going to stop letting a Company just do anything they want and get away with it!? Think about it before you just flame... it's plain and simple... Companies only do what the consumer base will allow them to. Think about that the next time you decide to not only pay a company to take advantage of you but also "side" with them whilst they do it. It's people like this that let things like SOPA happen!

    28gb in 5 days seems to be abusive. If you use that much data and you can get Verizon home service why not get that? Its good that Verizon isn't throttling you but that's probably because you haven't impacted other users yet. The moment your usage degrades other users you will most likely be throttled to maintain service to the other folks.
    Btw I average about 3.5gb/month with pretty heavy usage. That includes about 10 hours of netflix and remote pc tethering a month. Not sure how you racked up 28gb in 5days.
    I should add I don't use wifi at all. I use lte all the time since its usually faster.
